KBeer (117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2004
I had no idea what I was getting into when I got this -- mainly because my friend drank my last SNPA so he gave me one of these instead. A good beer. Good amber color with a decent head. More hops than a lot of ambers.

rumore (436) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 9, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours somehow hazy and dark red with fluffy brownish foam, fine. Aroma is an enjoyable mix of caramel, resinous, hazelnut, terrain. Body is medium-dense. Taste is sweet at first, with some bitterness coming up. Finish is not particularly long

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2017 Poured from a bottle, it appears hazy and unfiltered, with a deep amber coppery tone topped of with a very thin head of white froth, which dissipates quickly, leaving thin lacing, but reappears on swirling. Aroma is strongly caramel malt, together with hoppy notes of resin, florals and some fruit. Taste starts off lightly sweet, with notes of caramel, resin, florals and some fruit, then earthy undertones of bread, biscuit and dough, before finishing with bitter, though fairly abrupt. Carbonation feels quite lively, a bit too much for my taste, but strangely enough, it is paired with a rather thin and watery feel, especially towards the end.

from the Barrel - hazy dark amber beer with a moderate head retention; aroma of prunes and caramel; light spicy; some malt sweetness and a late decent bitterness; aftertaste of marzipan, red fruits and spices, a bit earthy; light residual sweetness

Gurthnar (5717) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 10, 2016
Tap at Zly casy. Buttery and slightly roasty. Not bad, but lacking in hoppiness in all respects and also struck by diacetyl.

MelvinKalksma (1466) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, bread and hops.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends sightly bitter and dry with bread and hops.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is way more outspoken than the taste, such a shame. Great appearance however and a good beer overall.

Faathoven (102) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - NOV 28, 2016
It pours a lovely ruby color with a medium tan frothy head of nice persistence. The aroma is caramel, light toffee, nice hoppiness (grapefruit, tangerine, red orange), some fruitness as well. The flavour follows the nose, up front a really nice caramel and maltiness, almost fruity, then a citrus hop character that lingers for a while, a subtle toasty note in the end which is just perfect. Extremely balanced! A very very dangerous beer, the alcohol content is wisely hidden and it goes down so easily. Soft carbonation, medium body with almost creamy mouthfeel. Just love it!
